Take a Break

Tomorrow is the second annual National Get Fit Don’t Sit Day. This national wellness day is organized by the American Diabetes Association. The ADA is committed to advancing the prevention, research, and treatment of diabetes and is one of the nation’s leading voluntary health organizations.
